Affordable Puerto Vallarta hotel by the bay boasts kids-eat-free policy
Holiday Inn Puerto Vallarta enchants leisure travelers with a bayside address and 200 renovated rooms with private balconies overlooking the beach. As a bonus, kids eat free at the casual restaurants and can participate in supervised activities. The on-site spa pampers from head to toe with hair and nail treatments and massages, while two tennis courts and a fitness center equipped with cardio machines invite guests to work out before hitting the sights. The outdoor pool captures picturesque vistas of the water.
Highlights
  • Affordable beachside hotel with 220 renovated rooms
  • Kids eat free
  • Kids club for children ages 4 to 12
  • Outdoor pool and fitness center
  • Spa pampers with massages and hair and nail services
Rooms
Holiday Inn Puerto Vallarta aims for casual, coastal appeal in 220 renovated rooms. Blond-wood furniture complements plush white bedding atop king beds or two double beds, while floor-to-ceiling windows display the property's best asset: a location by Banderas Bay. Furnished balconies invite guests to linger before retiring for the night. Free Wi-Fi is standard, along with a pillow menu, satellite TV and a telephone with voicemail.
Features
Holiday Inn Puerto Vallarta guests stay fit with a workout in the fitness center, which is equipped with treadmills, a stair climber and stationary bikes. The beach turns into an active sports zone, where guests play tennis on two courts and take a swim in the outdoor pool.

For tranquil downtime, head to the spa for massages and hair and nail treatments before relaxing in the sauna or Jacuzzi.
Dining
Parents, take note: Kids eat free at Holiday Inn Puerto Vallarta, but Piaceres Restaurant, the on-site Italian restaurant with a formal dress code, prohibits children under 16. Still, choices abound for families, from fast-food favorites at Snack Pinocho to the all-day buffet by the pool at Guacamaya Restaurant. Los Mariaches Restaurant -- to the right of the lobby bar -- specializes in authentic Mexican dishes and tasty tequilas.

Weekend getaway

This hotel was very ordinary. It is an older hotel and they do not make any effort to update or upgrade. The staff was just, blah. I would not recommend the all-inclusive option. The food and drinks are not good enough to warrant the extra charge and if you decide you would like to order something (and pay for it) off the menu..............they become very confused. We were even told "No" that we couldn't order off the menu. I have been to PV over 14 times and have stayed in many different types of places. But I would not stay here again. It was too far to walk downtown, but close enough to be noisy. If you enjoy peace & quiet and like to stay on the resort property, I would recommend Nueva Vallarta. If you like the bustle of downtown I would recommend Zona Romantica. However, this hotel is neither, which makes it nothing special at all.

La Carreta down on the beach (Zona Romantica area) is a wonderful, low-key spot for drinking and eating authentic snacks! Get there early and you can have a small table and umbrella that you can sit at all day if you wish! Great service!!!

I had a very good experience. The hotel's location,staff and amenities were great. The food at the buffet could of had more variety and the red and white wines could of been a little better quality.

I would not stay here again

We have vacationed 8 times in Puerto Vallarta and this was our worst experience. Your trip started waiting over three hours for our room as they said it had not been cleaned! The service was very poor in the buffet, it seemed if you wanted something you had to constantly ask, especially for a simple cup of coffee. At times it seemed the hotel was understaffed. This problem was solved, we started tipping before we were served. I thought a tip was something a server earned for good service. The food selection in the buffet and the snack bar was poor. It is advertised that there are two additional restaurants available for evening dining, Only one was open each night. You were lucky to get a reservation. We plan to vacation again in PV next year, but it will not be at the Hoiday Inn

Perennial guest

We have stayed here every year for the past 5 years. Rooms on the north side are quiet with a view of the ocean. Rooms have really comfortable beds. Hotel is very safe. Pool side entertainment s silly. The hotel stopped providing complimentary morning coffee. Fitness facility is lack luster. Poor internet access. We keep going back due to the expansive beach and comfortable rooms. With the rate increases this year and the not so greaustomer service, we will be staying elsewhere next year.

Great Holiday again in PV

This was our 3rd time at the Holiday Inn and I can't wait to go back again next year. Our ocean front room had the most beautiful views. One balcony you looked at the shoreline all the way into downtown PV and the the other balcony we watched the sunset every night, it was just awesome. The staff were all excellent from the front desk to the wait staff. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Above our expectation

We had so so expectations but it turned out to be a good compact resort for the price, We would book again for a similar deal, Food was good (nothing fancy for the price we paid) staff , especially the room cleaning service was superb. One problem: there is not enough shade on the property for sunny PVR. Nevertherless, a good to excellent place

Winter getaway

Had a really great stay, we did not go all inclusive, or with Transatlantic, so did not get to learn about all the activities that are available at the hotel. The location is good, although we liked it down by the Malecon, but the beach and water by the Holiday Inn is great..would not hesitate to go to the Holiday Inn again...
